Yorkshire Water – Implementing real-time network event detection to detect potential supply interruptions
A successful real-world trial of our groundbreaking eVader software
This presented an ideal opportunity to collect data on consumption and quantify the impact of a peak summer period on water demand. Artesia worked with 15 water companies and the Environment Agency to analyse a wide range of data and provide insights into the impact of the long dry summer.
We looked at long term time series data on system input through to shorter term detailed data on water use in homes and businesses. This data demonstrated that across the UK the hot and dry weather caused demand to increase significantly during June and July 2018. For example, Affinity Water saw peak demand increase by more than 11% for 39 consecutive days in the summer of 2018. The collaborative study developed a range of conclusions and recommendations to help water companies plan, act and improve future resilience in the event of future peak summer periods.
